Live music, espresso bar, food, and beer/wine in downtown Oakland. Serving Fourbarrel Coffee.
This cafe has so many rules.
Nice espresso drinks, friendly people. Social (has a no device policy sometimes).
Café très sympa sur Oakland ! Produits venant de Four Barrel Coffee SF donc le top de la bay ☕️
Tried to get some reading done but was distracted by the great Riot Grrl playlist. A+.
FYI. No wifi on Wed, Thu, Fri, Sat.

Awaken is going wifi-free part of the week. I'm in favor of unplugging, but you might want to call ahead if you're counting on wifi.
Beginning 2/1/15 now wifi free from Wed-Sat. From Sun-Tues the password is now americano
Great space for shoving a toastie in your face.
Great coffee and scones!
WiFi password is now coffeeshop
Coffee black, enough said.
Okay spot to work. Free Wi-Fi but limited outlets. Not a great food selection, but good drinks
Order sandwiches & salads online weekdays from 11AM to 2PM.
I almost jumped for joy when I found out they had gluten free raspberry scones. With Four Barrel coffee = bliss.
Great spot to study. Got a lot of worker bees here so there's a good balance of ambient cafe chatter and noise that's not too loud.
Great iced coffee
If all of us stare really hard at the lone guy monopolizing the one big square table he'll eventually feel uncomfortable and move. Right?

Good cafe with hipster ambiance and music. Not too crowded!
Great latte every time!
They have some cool events, but some of the staff is kinda snobby, it's uncomfortably jam packed with tables, and food and drink are too expensive considering those things.
Don't come for the espresso.
Granola for breakfast, highly recommended.
They have board games you can play! Settlers of Catan, Apples to Apples, Trivial Pursuit, Scrabble, Scategories, Cranium, and Pictionary.
The music v sucks, had to leave.
Came in 10 minutes before close. The staff was so rude and rushed us even though were taking it to go. Then ordered a hot chocolate and its just steamed milk with no flavor. This place sucks!
They've been known to go pretty heavy on the Hall & Oates and the Michael McDonald.

The chicken salad is a lie.
Food is overpriced. Basically variations on veg and bread.
Nice place to work. I don't recommend the food or service though. But if you just want a place to work w wifi that hosts good community events, check it out

Avocado toast, the shit. Try it with the olive tapenade, the perfect pairing

Best Mocha I've ever had and the kale quiche was yummy.
Good location, colorful crowd, tasty sandwiches and open late. What's not to like? Big tables are good for sharing so don't bother stuffing yourself into one of those little penalty desks by the door.
Good spot and decent coffee, but the music is always so bad that I have to leave.
Jeremy can make you a great cortado!
Best Chai nice and spicy

If there is anything that even remotely resembles a line, don't bother you'll be in it for 20 mins before you can get a cup of coffee.
Lots of power outlets and plenty of table space make this a great work spot. There's free Wi-Fi too. The wifi password is: doubleespresso
